KINGMAN – Hazardous wind conditions are expected in northwest Arizona for the next couple of days, but not strong enough for the National Weather Service to issue a high wind advisory.
Wind gusts up to 50 mph were forecast for parts of northwest Arizona, southeast California and southern Nevada, which can be especially dangerous for high-profile vehicles.
Northwest winds were spreading south across the region Monday afternoon and into this morning, with elevated north winds lingering down the Colorado River Valley through Wednesday, said Reid Wolcott, NWS meteorologist in Las Vegas.
A similar system will move across the region Thursday and Friday with even stronger winds, he said. A few areas could see gusts up to 60 mph.
Potential dangers from the winds include reduced visibility due to blowing dust and sand, dangerous boating conditions with significant wave activity and structures that may be damaged or destroyed.
